Hi everyone,
Good morning (it's morning in my country). I was supposed to do this post last night, but I slept off.
It occurred to me that although I've mentioned the importance of having a food journal, I've never really told you how to write one, or even shown you what mine is like.

As they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words", instead of describing how to write a food journal, I'll simply show you what mine looks like.
Please note that I'm not on a weight-loss diet anymore, I'm only eating healthy and doing only the basic workout routines.

The different food in my food journal ARE NOT for those who are trying to lose weight, and so SHOULD NOT be adopted as a model for a weight-loss diet.

My food journal is where I enter every single thing I put in my mouth. If I binge, I put it down. This way I can keep track of the APPROXIMATE number of calories I eat each day.

Please ignore my writing, I hope the pic's clear enough for you. You can zoom in on it too.

The comment box's all yours. Looking forward to reading your comments.
